Editable Sight Word Centers: Sight Word Paint Palettes

How cute is this paint blots and palette matching activity? You can extend the activity by asking your kiddos to spell the words with magnetic letters, or any other letters you have. A recording page is also included to get your kiddos writing as well. While I have only included photos of sight words, you can get your kiddos to match numbers, letters, their names or any other words you can think of! Happy Teaching 🙂 If you would like to purchase this resource, click here or on the picture... read more

Sight Words and Word Families Week 4

Hello again! This week I will be sharing 5 sight word activities and 5 word family activities. They are are super fun and will keep your kiddos engaged. Hopefully. I have included sample pages of each activity so you can try them out with your kiddos. If you like them and find them useful, I have also included links to the products in my store so that you can purchase them. At the very end of this post, I have included an EXCLUSIVE FREEBIE just for you! Read about Sight Words and Word Families Week 1 here. Read about Sight Words and Word Families Week 2 here. Read about Sight Words and Word Families Week 3 here.  This week’s sight words are: at, down, go, up Click the image above to download the sample word wall pages or HERE to purchase the complete packet from my store. The focus word family is AP. All the word family activities in this post are included in my AP Word Family packet that can be viewed HERE in my store. Let’s start with the sight word activities. I will begin with what I think is the most beneficial activity. You can use this activity for reading, writing and learning sentence structure. I have included cards that you can use in a pocket chart center. Kiddos are required to organise the cards to make a sentence. I have also included a black and white version of all the sentences; children cut out the cards and arrange them to make a sentence that makes sense. I have also included answer cards that you can keep together with a key ring. You can use the answer cards first as reading cards, then once your kiddos are more confident with sentence structure, use them as intended for this activity. I know I have too many photos for this activity but, guys, I just love it and I know you will too. If you like the look of the sample pages, click HERE to purchase Sight Words Build a Sentence packet. Best of all? For a limited time it’s only $1.00! Next activity. Sight Word Play Dough Mats. Am I right in assuming these are self-explanatory? Use them as intended with play dough. Or use them with dry-erase markers. Click HERE if you’d like to purchase the Sight Word Play Dough Mats. Up next are some sight word q-tip cards. Only I didn’t use a q-tip and paint; I... read more

Sight Words and Word Families Week 3

Welcome to Sight Words and Word Families Week 3 where I will be sharing with you some free samples of worksheets, readers and activities that you may find useful in your classroom or home. You can read about Sight Words and Word Families Week 1 here.  You can read about Sight Words and Word Families Week 2 here.  Week 3 focus sight words: is, it, like, my Focus word family: am (Click the photo to download the sight words and word family word wall. Click here to purchase the complete Pre-Primer Sight Words Word Wall packet and here for the complete Word Family Posters packet.) Let’s begin by looking at some sight word beginning and struggling reader booklets. By far, my favourite booklets are the flip books. (Click here to view them in my store, or the picture to download free samples.) Children are not only reading the focus word in context, but if you using the accompanying worksheets, your beginning writers can also practice writing a sentence correctly. These booklets are definitely going to boost your beginning reader’s self esteem when they see that they were able to make their own booklet AND also read it! Another favourite reading activity of mine comes from the Sight Words Fluency Reading Homework packet. I created this packet for beginning readers to develop reading fluency, but it will definitely help your struggling readers too. The next set of early reader books focuses on comprehension as well as fluency and is included in the Reading Comprehension Sight Word Readers (Pre-Primer) packet. If you’re looking for a simple but effective way to to practice each new sight word as you introduce it, you can’t go wrong with the cut and paste word work set. Another fun way to practice sight word building and writing the focus word is with the Sight Words Build a Word booklets. For those kiddos who need handwriting practice as well as writing and reading and the sight word in context, you should check out my Sight Words Handwriting Book. If your kiddos are ready to tackle guided sentence writing, then this cut and paste sentence worksheet might be helpful. While booklets and worksheets are all necessary tools for teaching early reading skills, I am a big believer in hands-on activities. Building bricks are big hit in our home – in fact, all my kids (including my son in the 8th grade) play on daily basis with their Legos. So yep, I went along and created... read more
